Sherry, sounds like the Elidel was like Remicade. When you stopped using it, your body was busy building antibodies, and when you started using it again, you had a reaction. You have to be exposed to something in order for your body to develop that reaction.
My skin is difficult too. It's very fair and sensitive, and I can't use anything with an oil or fat base on it. I started using the Bare Minerals products a few months ago, and they work really well. Normal foundation feels heavy and chalks up on me, and I really have to use something to even out the tone on my face.
